Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND

 16kmm header

Saturday, January 14, 2017
LEGOLAND® California is host to a special, 1-mile fun run for kids of all ages and abilities.  Before the doors open to the public, they're opened for us to enjoy the sights and sounds of LEGOLAND®! Participants can run, walk, skip or stroll, or even be pushed in a stroller or carried on a back as they wind through the park and back out to the finish line. Each finisher is presented with a shiny finisher's medal and treated to light refreshments and family- friendly entertainment. The event concludes at 10 a.m. with the opening of LEGOLAND® and SEA LIFE™ Aquarium where registered participants ages 3 to 12 can enter the park for free and moms and dads can enter for 50% off admission. Space is limited, register early!

Special Note:  For those of you who have participated in this event in past years, the pre- and post-event area will look a little different this time around. LEGOLAND® will be under construction so we'll have less room to work with. We're planning to bring back the same great experience you've come to enjoy, just on a smaller scale!

One Companion entry is offered with each "Itty Bitty Ones" and "Kids" entry and allows for one adult to accompany a child on the race course. Additional adults may accompany a child on the race course but must register as a "Big Kid."

To ensure the best participant experience, the event size is limited. Registration may close at any time and may not be available on event day.

Race Course:

The Kids Marathon Mile will start just outside of the LEGOLAND main entrance along the Tyke Hike. The course will continue into LEGOLAND making a loop of the park, exiting and finishing outside the park along the Tyke Hike. All of the pre- and post-race activities will take place in the lower parking lot of LEGOLAND.

Start Line Staging:

To ensure the safety of all participants and allow for maximum enjoyment, the one-mile races will start using a quick “wave start” according to your child’s age. Corrals for the age groups will be set up near the registration area. Children who want to run together but are different ages, should start with the youngest child’s group. Corrals will be set up for the following age groups:  12 + (youths only), 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 and 4 & under including families and anyone pushing a stroller or wheelchair.

Please note: No late starters will be allowed so be sure you’re at the event and in your corral by 7:45 a.m.
